Great news for all Deus Ex fans, as the team behind New Vision has released its final version. In case you were unaware of, New Vision is a project that overhauls the environmental textures of ION Storm’s classic first-person shooter / RPG title. Those interested can download it from here or here. What’s also great here is that another team has released a beta version of the HDTP mod for Deus Ex. You can also find below a video – courtesy of YouTube’s member ‘MrBreakingBalls’ – that features both New Vision and HDTP 2012 Beta.
According to its official page, the Project HDTP is a High Definition Texture Package for the original Deus Ex game. The original in-game textures were of a very low resolution, some textures even being as low as 32×32. However, it was discovered that it is possible to increase the resolution of those textures to a minimum of 256 (we can now jump this up to 1024×1024 in appropriate situations). This has been tested in-game and we have witnessed the start of a massive graphical overhaul.
The combination of New Vision with HDTP is the perfect match for those interested in re-playing Deus Ex, so make sure to download both of them.
